This is my opinion about the matter.
I feel that for a game as troubled as current V2, it is essential to fix, balance and improve things one step at a time, and not bundle it up, which is what i think is happening, with the DLC coming in soon aswell.
There was no patch this week, and there are multiple things that have a huge negative impact on gameplay experience that i cant imagine taking alot of work to atleast workaround.
Patrol issues, make them have audio regardless of them moving or not.
Green dust, give us a simple conversion system.
Shield SV, nerf the hell out of their stamina.
Emergency buffs to weapons such as kruber single sword, hagbane, bolt staff, elf single sword etc.
Not to mention the reduced chance of game breaking bugs sneaking in with big updates, and lowered time to find exactly what is causing them.
